Unfortunately, the principal was not the person she pretended to be. Upon arriving at Pretty Decent, the ATR ws forced to sign a form saying he agreed to be a provisional employee for the year. The UFT told him not to worry, that signing meant nothing. The UFT was wrong as usual. Last June, the ATR was excessed.
The ATR is a fighter. He immediately called his union rep and filed a grievance to get back in Pretty Decent HS. Then the ATR got nervous. If the principal did not want him, what kind of future would he have there? He did not feel like fighting administration for the next 10 years.
A week goes by and ATR opens his e-mail to find the following DOE message:
Dear Mr. ATR,
You are asked to attend an interview for a position at XXXXXX. The interview is scheduled as follows:
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS - Interview with Principal, Pretty Decent HS
The same person that told him to disappear is now in charge of interviewing him. How fair is that? And the press, Bloomberg, Klein and everyone else claim ATRs don't want to work. I almost cried when read this.
